    Holding a fish for a picture.

    We will be using rubber hooks soon. Every fisher that goes on about how cruel lifting a fish is just giving the anties more ammunition. Bob..

    Massive farmer caught

    See M.&S, have stopped selling salmon and the R.S.P.A. has stopped endorsing salmon farms. The message is getting there slowly but you young ones had better hope salmon farming does not stop. I am old enough to remember when we thought that salmon farming was the answer to saving wild fish. The...

    Well done. Lovely fish. Out yesterday and not a sign of a sea trout any where. Any getting caught or are the nets having a field day. Bob.

    Wasting your time with a jack hammer. The machines bucket would rip up the concrete in the time it takes to start the compressor. Bob.

    Cctv on Fishing Beats.

    That is the best idea so far. Cost not great and replacement easy. Bob.

    Holding a fish for a picture.

    That is the modern fisher wanting photos to show off. Having said that i like to see photos of fish caught. Can not believe that a fish fighting its way up a river being a few minutes out the water will do it much harm compared to the time some people spend playing a fish. See fish in a landing...

    Massive farmer caught

    Would like an idea of the size of the fish out of interest. My idea of a huge fish is anything over the 30 lbs. size. Well done on its capture. Bob.

    Cctv on Fishing Beats.

    Try a trail camera. Good for tracking wildlife but not sure how it would be hidden but still give clear photos. Also need to make sure as few people as possible know about it. Bob.

    Done things in the past like that when folk were delighted with work carried out and did not want to pay. Bob

    Most weeks there is a full page advert [Herald] on how wonderful farmed salmon are and all the things they are doing to make them even more environment friendly. It would appear to me that they are making a big expensive play for public opinion on there side. Bob.

    Looks as if it has been well built. Is it not an entrance to the house. In Scotland when we were building various add ons. It was calculated on the cubic capacity of the house. You were allowed to add up to a certain capacity without planning permission but you still needed a building warrant. Bob.

    Best salmon river i UK?

    Used to have a rod on the East Haugh beat of the Tummel. About 11-12oclock at night you would hear the chatter of the river up till about 7 when the noise of the traffic shut out the river. Never noticed it untill i stayed over night on the river. Bob.

    Best salmon river in the world?

    Remember in 1992 i was bored catching salmon that i gave up and went for the grayling. That was a river in central Scotland. I fail to see the point if it is the number of fish caught. That is why i would choose the brownies in place of the silver tourist. You know they are there and your skill...

    Goo sander or merganser ?

    How do you know that they lay 8-12 eggs per year and i certainly do not believe 11 of those do not make it to breeding age. You would need radio trackers on all young to have any idea what survival rates are. We found a dead osprey last year amongst the rubbish brought down in the spates that...
